Global / 17-09-20 / by

In the latest episode of the GTR News Brief, the new podcast series from the editorial team, host Felix Thompson gives a breakdown of recent major stories in trade and trade finance news as covered by GTR.

According to new data, French financial institutions have the most robust policies in place when it comes to eliminating support for coal projects.

A wide range of topics were discussed at the annual GTR Asia event, which was held virtually last week, as the trade finance sector reflected on the impact of Covid-19 on the region, and a string of fraud scandals in the Singaporean commodity sector.

Elsewhere at the event, Michael Froman, vice-chairman of strategic growth at Mastercard, gave his take on just how global we can expect the future of trade to be.

We have more on the UK striking a free trade agreement with Japan, the first deal of its kind since it exited the EU.

Reporter Maddy White also gives a closer analysis, after a new Verisk Maplecroft report showed an increase in modern slavery risks across key manufacturing markets in Asia.
